Philadelphia Union player tested positive for the Coronavirus
Chester PA: As the entire nation keeps on the fight against the Coronavirus, it has hit one of the players for the Philadelphia Union.
On Wednesday, the Philadelphia Union would announce that a Union player has tested positive for the Coronavirus
In the team statement, it said the following:
The Union medical staff has been working directly with Crozer-Keystone Health System medical officials to treat the player who experienced mild symptoms and is feeling well and in good spirits. The player is observing appropriate isolation protocols. No other cases or symptoms within Philadelphia Union soccer operations have been identified at this time.
No Philadelphia Union players or technical staff have trained or been at the Power Training Complex facility or Subaru Park since Thursday, March 12. Based upon guidance from Crozer-Keystone Health System medical officials, infectious disease specialists and Major League Soccer health officials, this case does not present a risk to our fans, our most recent opponent, LAFC, or any of the other Union players, staff, or personnel and Union players and personnel do not need to be tested as the team is outside of the 14-day window where anyone with team-related interactions with the player would have reported symptoms.
In addition to working with our infectious disease specialist, we remain in consultation with the CDC, local health authorities and Major League Soccer regarding this situation. The health and safety of our players, coaches and staff remain our top priority.

Today I am issuing a statewide Stay at Home Order to further mitigate the spread of #COVID19.
